Printed for private ledge my obligations to this gentleman for his permission to copy those maps in his volume which represent the routes of Jackson and Ewell from Swift Run Gap in .the movement against Banks, and the battles of Kernstown and Mac-Dowell It may not bcessary to assert that I have not so much attempted to point out how the skill of General Lee and the daring of General Stonewall Jackson prevailed over their enemies, in the general theatre of the latter's military operations, as to show in particuing upon the colossal incapacity of their favorites in the field. But that this does not detract from the very marked ability shown by both Lee and Jackson in taking advantage of these blunders, I cheerfully concede. G. H. G. Framingham, 1883.

That it was practicable to scale and take these Heights, in the face of a good defence, Stonewall Jackson proved one year later, before we attacked Lee at Antietam; and whether wise or otherwise, that some commanders do cross rivers at night (rivers, too, that are not fordable), without any consideration of how they are to get back again provided all things do not turn out as expected and a larger force is encountered than is looked for, or they are not supported as they fancy they ought to be, we had abundant and melancholy evidence some few weeks later at Ball's Bluff, on the Potomac.
